Background

Cacouna LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in Quebec, Canada. TransCanada Corporation and Petro-Canada signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop the liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in 2004, and received approval from the Québec Government in 2007. However, the project was called off in 2009, in the wake of growing unconventional gas production in North America.[1]
